  • Abstract

    With a primary focus on the efficiency of appraisals, the team working to upgrade the Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI) will share information about the aim and progress of their work. This webinar will cover the major technical changes anticipated, and provide attendees with insights about present challenges and future improvements to the appraisal method. Seven primary Change Packages are described with a summary of implementation details relating to these areas of change.   - Do you feel that too much time and money is spent preparing for appraisals? 

    • Are you worried that the difference between a "Direct Artifact" and an "Indirect Artifact" seems to receive more attention by some appraisal teams than improving the way work is done? 
    • Are you wondering why your team has been labeled a "non-focus project"? 
    • Do you have difficulty understanding how to choose the appropriate mix of projects to adequately represent your organization in an appraisal? 
    • Is it difficult to identify qualified people to serve on an appraisal team?

    Come hear these topics, and others, discussed by one of the members of the SCAMPI Upgrade Team.
